A community group I belong to kept being shunted around by those people and now has ended up at the Railway by Clapham High Street station.Re-opened (eventually) 20th May.
Yes, but they're moving their awesome bar outdoors!
maybe so but this event has been kept very hush hush, even the park keepers didn't know it was happeningLambeth says it's all about a "community connect."
Really? I haven't found that - coasted through this morning northbound with lights in cyclists' favour. There are of necessity two light cycles though so I guess it depends on timing.So, the new roundabout layout for Stockwell has some teething problems.
Firstly the north bound cycle filter lane - it's pointless - takes you with the traffic to the right of the war memorial, and then leaves you (as a cyclist) on a segregated lane with a red traffic light, whilst the other 'traffic' lane is prioritised with a green filter to turn left or go straight on. It's quicker and easier as a cyclist to go into the non segregated traffic lane and carry on amongst the cars and lorries.
Agree with you here. Even worse, the other day I (eventually) got a green on the bike lane to go southbound and nearly got wiped out by a lorry turning left, so something had gone wrong.Coming from the East (along Clapham Road) you get the same thing - if you're a cyclist turning left onto Stockwell Road, the segregated cycle lane has lower priority than the non segregated mainstream one.
This is true! Yesterday I noticed that the True Brixton road had been swept, but cycle lane was full of rubbish (glass, leaves, bottles) etc. already. Sigh.I've noticed a lot of these crazy junction "improvements" take a while and probably a bit of tweaking to bed in. Did anyone else see the chaos of the E&C changeover.
Yeah I'm on the True Brixton Bypass. I guess they must be prioritising us SW2ers for a reason.I have to disagree with Winot on the lights though. I always wait at the war memorial while the traffic swings left. Maybe you're coming up from Clapham Road (SW2/SW4) rather than SW9 (i.e. True Brixton)?
might be a bit disruptive for kids about to do gcse's which have been made more difficult this year with the new style exams ushered in Sir Gregs mate Gove.....I still cannot believe this chancer was given free reign to fuck about the way he did.Yes. After a short break and cooling off period.
